Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

i got heartburn alot in my first trimester and i took tums and it helped
Tums!  Tell your doctor you're having heart burn.  She'll tell you to take Tums (or Zantac if it's more servere). :)
TUMS!!!  I've also heard that bananas help, but mostly it's the tums!
A no-drugs solution is simple. Chew gum! The saliva calms the acid down in your esophagus for a while. It worked for me :)
I've been experiencing heart burn in the middle of the night, so I know how you feel! Tums definitely do they trick for me as does drinking a glass of milk. I recently read something that mentioned drinking a glass of water or something to make you salivate works as well. Good luck!
